Nearly everyone who has a substance use disorder also has a family that has stood beside them. This family has likely encouraged their loved one to stop using the addictive substance and/or to seek outside help. Like most families, yours likely provides both a source of support and stress. A family therapy program in Los Angeles is an important component of recovery.
What is a Family Therapy Program?
A family therapy program in Los Angeles brings you and members of your immediate family together. This can include your parents, siblings and their significant others, if appropriate, and other close relatives or guardians. Additionally, extended family members like grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles might also participate, depending on your relationship with them.
Because you are a result of the environment in which you grew up, your family played an important role in your development. This includes all aspects like physically, spiritually, and emotionally. You are impacted by those family members who were instrumental in your upbringing and their actions impacted you in a myriad of ways. A grandparent’s illness, from example, can affect your life as well as the lives of those who are caring for both you and your loved one.
